YEEHAA! lost my crappy job today! its a Beautiful Day!!!!

The place is going down the pan, and last week they announced there will be redundacies and anyone can be considered for voluntary redundacies, so I applied and they approved it! Got 5600 to put it the bank that means I can sit on my arse for about 6 months! lol Now I can do what I want to do which is starting up my own website design business! WOOHOO!
Just wanted to share that with y'all!

Hey thanks guys! Yes I am truly happy to be out of there as I wanted to go for sometime now but wanted to hold on in case there were redundacies like today! Even if things don't take off then I can find another job locally (the company moved 16 miles away from my home town a few years ago and I had to rely on lifts from fellow workers as I don't drive!)and still try getting my own business off the ground, I know it won't be easy but al least I have tried! lol Gonna paint the town a deep shade of red tonight! lol I can get pissed tonight and have a loooooong lay in tomorrow! lol

Well, its good news for now that you can do as you feel. Good luck with your business. Always good to leave a job you hate and start one you like much better.

Cheers!
